The 200ft long bridge joins the west cliff at the Yunmeng Fairy Summit, the summit of Tianmen Mountain and Zhangjiajie. The pathway, built earlier in the summer echoes the glass-bottomed walkway at the Grand Canyon in the U.S. The 70ft bridge is 4,000ft above the natural wonder and allows tourists to look through 2.5in of crystalclear glass to the Canyon floor below. The Tianmen mountain, literally translated as Heavenly Gate Mountain is so called because of a huge natural cave that occurs halfway up to the summit.


Stunning: The skywalk offers breathtaking views across the Hunan Province for those brave enough to attempt to cross the bridge

Don’t look down: A brave tourist walks along the glass path that was built on the side of a cliff, 4,700ft above sea level, on Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China


遊客們正摸著岩壁, 走過60米長的東方 “天空之路”


他們的腳下,就是筆直的懸崖峭壁,整個過程都一覽無遺


這條看著就讓人腿軟的玻璃棧道給人帶來的刺激震撼感


可與舉世聞名的美 國大峽谷玻璃走廊 “天空之路”媲美


晴天時,藍天和白雲的倒影鋪滿了整條棧道,


讓人在對腳下的透明戰戰兢兢之余


更樂享於踏雲而行的快感;雲霧天氣,


玻璃棧道則在霧中若隱若現,天上人間的美景更是讓人驚歎不已


為了讓遊客零瑕疵的透過 玻璃橋看到美麗的風景,


遊客們都要穿鞋套以保持 玻璃橋的透明和乾淨。


如果你夠膽,來挑戰 張家界天門山頂的東 方“天空之路”


憑空伸出的玻 璃眺望臺


玻璃觀景台:如果是雨前 雨後,在棧道上則是身邊 霧氣盤繞


腳下雲海翻騰,令人擡腿似生霧,邁步如踏雲,人間天界,


世外洞天也就 是如此了。


由於海拔和氣流的影響,很多小 鳥都不能到達與棧道平行位置。 站在這裏偶爾有老鷹從眼前掠 過,閉上眼,挺著發麻的雙腿,


帶著急促的心跳,伸開雙臂,你就能得到一次最完美,最刺激,


最貼近自然的SPA。因為,要 知道這種在懸崖上賞風景一 般都是非人類所能享受的。


全長60米,最高處 海拔1430米


Situated in the Hunan Province, its highest peak is around 5,000ft above sea level and it is home to a wealth of rare species of plants. A four-mile-long cable car was constructed in the park, which is said to be the longest of the same type in the world. The futuristic glass walkway is a marked upgrade from another sky high mountain walkway located in the same province. For comparison: The Shifou Mountain located 82 miles away in Hunan Province offers sightseers a 3ft-wide road made of wooden planks thousands of feet high. When finished the ‘road’ - which is the width of a dinner table - will stretch for 1.8miles making it China’s longest sightseeing path.


Workers build a footpath around the vertiginous slopes of Shifou Mountain in China


The workers are building a plank road on the side of the Shifou mountain that, once it is finished, will stretch for 3km (9843 ft) and be China’s longest sightseeing footpath


Thousands of metres up the vertiginous slopes of Shifou Mountain in Hunan Province, China, a team of workers, operating with hardly any safety measures, are building a footpath


48-year-old Yu Ji (above) is one of the workers and he has been working on high cliffs building such plank roads for more than 10 years. He comments: “Young people don’t want this job, as it requires them to stay deep in the mountains for months or even years”


Yu Ji takes charge of the most dangerous part of the project drilling the holes to set up pipes to support the footpath


Building a plank road on Shifou Mountain is difficult because the cliff stands vertical at 90 degrees, without any slope or alcoves
